Desert Rose has researched the impact of sound on the mind, body and spirit for 20 years and developed half day and full day retreats, workshops and sound healing circles for the purposes of healing and raising consciousness. In 2009 they launched their first workshops using a combination of sound, mantra, breathing and theta healing and was featured on South Africa’s national television programme, The Power Within, for their healing initiative.
In this session we harness the power of sound within healing circles. With the combination of kriya, mantra and breath we collectively raise our vibration and consciously direct this vibrational energy to assist one another on the journey of healing and awakening. These are transformative and powerful modalities to shift blocked energy.
Each circle is organized according to the mantra, the kriya and the intention. Desert Rose has developed its own unique expression of original music and mantras woven into kriya, creating a powerful and unique healing experience in these sessions. The power of the group energy is exponential, raising vibration for the part and the whole. The difference of the group as opposed to solo chanting is tangible. In these sessions we are all healers, and with the intention of healing others, we heal ourselves. We shift from egocentric to altruistic states.
Desert started doing sound healing workshops in 2009 and in April 2015 they conducted various workshops and retreats in Brazil. Since then have conducted many workshops locally and internationally.
In 2018 they added mantra master classes to their workshops.
In 2019 they developed sound healing circles and composed new music based on scientific principles of healing and attuned to opening of the sacred chakras or energy centers in the body. The healing circles include a sound bath with musical instruments, crystal bowls, tibetan singing bowls and combined with conscious breathing and sacred chanting it creates a safe place for inner transformation and healing.

TESTIMONIAL BY SOMEONE WHO ATTENDED THE DESERT ROSE MUSIC HEALING WORKSHOP ON 28 SEPTEMBER 2013
– A COPY OF HER EXACT WORDS
In 2011 my brother died at the hand of a man that belonged to an insurgent group in Afghanistan. It left me shattered and bereft of the best friend I have ever had.
As a hypnotherapist I am very aware of subconscious patterns that govern my actions. I also live a life that harbours allowingness for others whether it be their religion, way of life or belief systems.
I however have been unaware of my subconscious reaction to things Arabic and Muslim until I found myself crossing the street when I saw Muslim dressed people on the side walk in front of me. I was shocked at my own reaction and then realized how absolutely insidious our governing patterns are as a result of trauma.
Coming to your workshop was an impulse, having known nothing about you or your music. I came because I was interested in how you use the music to induce the theta state.
And then the music started, and it was Arabic.
And all I could feel was this immense process that started in my heart. When he was shot it vaporized a hole my heart. A huge space of nothingness. I felt the Arabic words filling up that space and giving birth to green leaves that haven’t stopped growing and my fears and thoughts and anger (which I didn’t realize existed) started dissolving. This immense dissolving process…
I felt the music and the words rinse my cells clean and replace it with Grace.
I felt humbled by the majestic interconnectedness I felt with him that took my brother’s life and I surrendered to a greater Will. It also allowed me the access to a very valuable memory of a life long ago that gave me tremendous perspective and understanding.
Your music not only induced the theta state for accessing and remembering and healing, but of a healing that traversed time and space and left great peace on many levels. I realized that our deepest healing and resurrection are often found in the very thing that we perceive to have caused us harm.
Who would have guessed that Allah resides in me.
It remains an ongoing process. Each time I listen more leaves are sprouting and more Grace descends. You are gifted and Divinely inspired beyond words or understanding. I am profoundly grateful for sharing that experience with you.
In Love and Light and Gratitude
